    My boss wants me to head the recent foreign tour but I am not at all confident about it

    I am working in a private firm. Recently a group of employees were selected for a foreign tour in order to finalize an important deal. My boss wants me to head this foreign tour but I am not at all confident about it and want to just be one of the team members, not the leader. How to put this in front of my boss?

    Hello,

    This is a very rare opportunity to show your skills and leadership ability to
    your collegues. Not many people get sucg kind of opporunity to go abroad.
    You should be confident enough to grab this chance of a life time. But still
    it's your decision, if you are not at all confident then you should tell your
    boss that you want to go there as a team member and not as team leader.
    You have to convince your boss about the issue.

    Bye,

    I think this is a golden opportunity to show your excellence.I feel wasting this opportunity wont be a good option. I can understand,may be this is the first time you are heading towards a foreign tour,thats why you are not confident enough.I believe you need good amount of mental preparation.Mental preparation is extremely crucial at this point of time,otherwise things will get absolutely scattered.Secondly,you have to understand your work minutely,as you cannot take any risk at this level. I know this entire procedure requires a whole lot of mental strength and immense self confidence.If you can accumulate these and utilise these properly,then huge success awaits for you!

    Re: My boss wants me to head the recent foreign tour but I am not at all confident about it

    Hello,

    This a very great opportunity to progress in your professional career.
    If your boss has confidence on you then you must have self confidence on yourself.
    Your boss has chosen you for your capabilities and perfection.
    He has seen some extra potential in you than others.
    Your work profile must have been really good.

    You should not loose such an opportunity when it is coming to you.
    If you refuse this kind of chance then in future when you will want such thing you may not get ad will have regret this one.
    You must be motivated and happy for this rather than discourage yourself to become just a team member.

    Leadership for the tour will provide you more confidence in yourself.
    You will learn the advantages of leading a group.
    Leadership is what every one wants and you want to let go this opportunity.

    Yet if you do not want to lead , you can talk about it to your boss.
    But you do not know the consequences.
    After losing this you may never get another chance.
    Along with this, if your boss changes his mind then you may lose the chance of going to the tour.

    So, take a correct decision.
    Do not fear and be the king.
    You must lead the tour.

    Good luck

    Dear..

    First of all let me tell you that with bigger responsibility you will always gets chances to grow at a faster pace. Do one thing take on the responsibility and give your best shot and take full advantage of the opportunity that you are getting. Do not shy and be confident.Your one positive step can churn out good result for you Try to grab this opportunity with both hands and make full use of it. prepare well in advance for the deal and make all necessary arrangements. Do not hesitate as this can be a life time experience for you . If your performance meet your boss's expectation that in reward you can see a fast and pacey career. This is not that difficult and only a thorough preparation can help you to cash the opportunity.

    But if you are not at all confident and do not want to do this then its better to tell your boss that sir I do not want to be the leader as I will not be able to perform well in the deal and I do not want that because of me whole deal ruined up so its better you choose some one else a leader. I am sure this will not create any issues as you are telling your boss well in advance which will allow him to think once again and choose the better one.

    Also this can create a bad impression of yours in front of the boss. People wait for their whole life to get such an oppurtunity so use it

    AND ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT THOSE WHO PERFORM ARE ALWAYS REMEMBERED. SO TRY TO USE THIS OPPORTUNITY FOR YOUR BETTERMENT.

    Hope it will help

    Re: My boss wants me to head the recent foreign tour but I am not at all confident about it

    Hi Dear,

    A hearty congratulations for this wonderful opportunity!

    First of all, you should consider yourself to be lucky and worthy of getting such an important and respectable responsibility. Moreover, you should also be thankful to god and your skills that has enabled you to win the love and confidence of your boss.

    I understand that you are not so confident of taking this responsibility because you know that your boss has a lot of expectations from you and you are scared of not living up to his expectations. Yet, I would suggest you to take up this opportunity as a challenge and move ahead because if you really want to taste the sweetness of success, then friend you have to accept challenges in the disguise of opportunities.

    However, I have a suggestion which would ease your work and make you more comfortable. You can request you boss to assign one of your team members to share the responsibilty with you and both of you together can plan the agenda of the tour and work together as a team. This would not only help you to get the exposure of the foreign tour on the professional front, but also will make your trip a joyful one.

    In addition, prepare everything in written for the meetings in foreign land so that you things don't get panicky there. Also, have a good discussion with your boss and your team mates about the topics to be covered and the work to be done during the tour. In fact, prepare a checklist before travelling and go on checking the list as the work gets completed.

    So, go ahead and grab this golden opportunity and come back with all smiles.

    Cheers..!!
    Ritz

    Dear Aspirant,

    Congratulations for getting offer for foreign tours with as a leader.If you are senior among all the members,you must accept the offer,otherwise you may loose chance of getting promotion later on.

    Make a points of your agenda to be completed as a team leader with the help of your boss & also get important tips to complete those points of the agenda.Even if you are not senior,you should accept your offer & challenge.Meanwhile you can contact over phone to your boss,if you feel any problems while dealing the official matters.

    If you are not all interested to lead the team,you can pretend of not feeling well & request to propose the name of other employee who can be competent to lead the team.But if you wish,you can lead & succeed in it.

    Thanks & good luck.

    one should always keep check of their abilities and their capability of handling responsibilities..yes its very stressful and responsible job to be a team leader but you should know your talent in you.. first of you should go to your boss ask reasons why he choose you for the lead role. then he will explain your abilities strengths its useful action needed for you. your boss can judge you in a better way.. when you have given a golden opportunity to be team leader you should be charging in you should boost your confidence and get your inspirational level to a peak level.. i want to say you your great you can handle any pressure one think about the moment when you successfully complete your project work as team leader you cannot express your feeling you cannot take backstep.. the only problem with you is self confidence i am sure your talent if not boss will not say you to take responsibility..you should inspire your self be a champion very few will get this chance don't loss this opportunity all the best

    Re: My boss wants me to head the recent foreign tour but I am not at all confident about it

    If you are not confident then make it clear to the boss and also specify the reason behind that, after that also if he will ask you to go for the same then you should go because it will be a nice experience for you to go for the foreign tour and he also wants you to head that, its a good news you should be thankful to your boss as he have given you a nice opportunity.Many of the employees were actually jealous of you because you have got such an nice opportunity.Well as you are not confident then you should take the positive points from you boss that what you need to do in these kind of situstion. person become nervous in 2 kinds of situation when he does not knbow what to do and when he is confused to make decision.If you are facing any of the problem then you need to destroy that problem because till the time you wont fight with the problem then they will not leave you alone and they will make you nervous every time and you will never get the success in life. so take my points seriously and go for the tour.
